Oh....this is tempting.  I think I'll see how my month goes with the two other swaps I'm doing and then make my decision.  I'm glad signups are going on for so long!

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:

If need be, I can always extend signups too. Smiley  I'll wait and see if anyone is interested.

Well, I'm doing the bookmark swap that's due for sending by the 18th and the frugal living swap which is due by the beginning of Feb. but I'm going to meet my partner in person on the last weekend of the month rather than mailing.  So I should actually know by the 23rd whether my budget can manage a swap in February.

I'll definitely keep an eye on this.  I'm a wee bit over-extended swap-wise right now, but I'll know by the 23rd whether or not I can handle this.  I love purses!

Oh I so wanna do this one!!!!  And realistically I'll almost certainly join up lol  Just have to see what's up with the IYP I'm tentatively signed up for before I sign up.

I would really love to join this swap! I'm going to have to think about it though, but I'll probably join anyway. Cheesy

I'm going to keep this in mind too!  I'll have to see if I'm done crafting for my other swap early...hope so!!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

oooh i wish i could participate in this one.  i'm organizing my first swap and have taken on two partners, so i'm a little bit stressed right now.  plus my sewing machine is out of order right now... i think i have to buy a new one. hmm.. i'll have to think on this one.  maybe i'll have most of my crafting done for my other swap before the end of signups for this...
